Nearly jet black in darkness, thin bubbly cap looks like Coca-Cola carbonation. Cap dissipates after a minute or so to a small ring around the glass. Small spots of lacing.
Coffee is the most obvious factor in the nose. Some notes of chocolate as well. Almost smells like an iced mocha. Can smell a hint of booze.
Tastes chocolatey on the front end, and bitterness builds to the back end into a dark chocolate and coffee taste. Finish is really nutty. Does not taste boozy per se, but some how I can just tell this is a high ABV brew based on its intense flavor.
Velvety and smooth in the mouth, little carbonation.
I do not often drink stouts, so I feel a little out of place here rating a "world-class" version of the style. That being said, this beer really makes me want to explore the style more. IMO this one would be best as a nightcap or after dinner. It is strong, complex, and satisfying. I don't necessarily want another, because I am perfectly satisfied with just one.

A- Dark black with a decent head.
S- A nice blend of chocolate and coffee beans. The smell dissipated rather quickly in my snifter, but agitating it brought it all right back.
T- Lives up to it's smell wonderfully, a rich coffee and chocolate flavor. Can't say I really pick up on the oatmeal as well as the former flavors, but it tastes amazing nonetheless.
M- Very smooth, non intrusive aftertaste. Minimal amount of bitterness that stays with you for a bit after you've finished.
O- Absolutely beautiful blend of chocolate and coffee, both in terms of smell and taste. One of the best beers I've had and my favorite stout to date.
